Death of the Pillar

Desolation upon me, pain I couldn’t explain
Confused and lost, drench in suffocating mist
Cold breeze envelopes, a lacerated heart

Dawn never came; dark of night wraps my being
Shed tears dried up, still wound within me stings
Rock that used to be, buried beneath the ground

He, the pillar has gone, shall never return
Rock that he is, soon dust he will become
But his wisdom forever be embedded in my mind

Father let me mourn, but not with disdain
I am your son; will carry your legacy, your name
